BREAKING as of 11:30pm 12/31/05

Fox News and SIRIUS could not make a deal...

Want to know why? Here is some inside info from our Dec 18th post:
Get Sirius Info, is told that FOX gave XM a “good deal� for FOX News Radio Programming, and the FOX News Channel. The deal was all part of the XM/Direct TV deal. (XM stations on Direct TV) Rupert Murdoch, owner of FOX also owns around 35% of the parent company of Direct TV. The over all deal we are told with FOX, XM & Direct TV are all related and part of one big agreement. We are told SIRIUS was asked to pay an inflated price for FOX content, some reports tell us almost 200% higher prices then XM is paying. - See more chat about this in our forum.
Also read more in our past post here

Update: We are told by SIRIUS, that talks are not over, but the contract ran out. SIRIUS wants to make a deal with FOX, and will work to have FOX rejoin the SIRIUS Lineup.

GSI: AUDIO you can also listen to the end of FOX NEWS. SIRIUS cut fox off at 11:30pm (ET) the FOX New Year Eve live show was on, and then an Alive commercial pops on, after a few commercials, "This is CNN HEADLINE NEWS... ." Take a listen here..

Man, I hope they get this worked out soon. Off all the damn channels at my disposal, I found myself listening to Fox News the most.

If this doesn't get worked out soon, my 2 receivers and boombox are heading to ebay. I hate to go to XM but face it, music is music. What differentiates the services is the other content. I got Sirius so I wouldn't have to listen to Stern on terrestrial radio.
